My Tree Barks

My bark is worse than my bite
although once my bite was worse than my bark
back when I was but bark on tree
and it was a dogwood tree
so I was bark bark
and became known as Bark Bark Smith
and little dogs pissed on me.

It was a good life
warm and wet
before I matured into tendril stock
which warps and weaves
in woof woof wonder
which is why
I’m now known as
Bark Bark Woof Woof Smith
the One Who Never Whimpers.

    Gosh.. love the two photos.. back of an old mirror… gee. How beautiful… some one could try to do that and it not be as interesting.

    Love the poem.. made me chuckle… always good to do that.
